What to expect in a session

Shiatsu sessions take approx 1 hour and typically cover the whole body. Treatments take place at floor level on a futon or on a massage chair, with the client wearing loose comfortable clothing.
At your first session I will take a detailed case history to develop a complete picture of your health according to the principles of oriental medicine and discuss how you would like shiatsu to help you.

I will then use a variety of techniques to improve your energy flow. These may include gentle holding, pressing with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees and feet on the meridians and , when appropriate more dynamic rotations and stretches.
Following a treatment, there can be a feeling of increased vitality and you may feel invigorated, yet relaxed. I may also show you specific exercises or acupressure points, or make general nutrional and/or lifestyle suggestions to support the treatment.
